My computer seems to have a power problem. I have 2 adaptors that I know work, but i can just be working on my computer and it will lose power. The battery isn't getting charged either so I can't even work on off the battery. I would by a new battery, but if the power supply won't charge it I don't see a reason to spend the money. The rest of the computer is still in great shape and would love to keep it, but need to find out how to fix this connection otherwise the computer will be of no use.
Hi, My name is Michael Fuller, I'm the owner of Computer Eworld. I have this laptop and mine had the same problem, 2 things are wrong, your bios needs to be updated and your system needs to be updated. If you want, I can fix this problem, it will cost you $35 for the labor, and of course the shipping charges. You can put your request in on the company website or you can call me directly, my number is 662-549-2362. www.computereworld.com well good luck and have a happy new year!

Try removing the battery and disconnecting the power for a minute or so. Then re-install the battery and power cord and try booting it up again. If that doesn't work I'm afraid it's probably an issue with the motherboard.
Looks like boards range between $100 - $200 If it's not something you want to tackle yourself, expect labor to be about $100. Consider the age of the laptop and the cost of about $200-$300...some newer laptops can be had for that amount. (Especially with Black Friday sales going on.) Check microcenter.com
Hello If you have an Nvidia or ATI graphics card then they are probably the problem and can only be replaced by replacing the motherboard. Apart from that this seems to be a motherboard problem ,have you tried with only the battery and vice verca.
Hi, For that Laptop problem. try this solution first remove battery backup of your laptop and then connect power supply adaptor then power on, if not yet screen display. try also cleaning laptop memory module slot at back of laptop. Check-up also power supply adaptor for 100% working good. also laptop hole connector for power supply.
Just let me know if not yet working your PC laptop.
Just check the power connection from the AC going to your laptop if the power adaptor of your laptop are working. Note; you only know that the power adaptor was working if the LED (Light Emiting Diode) was light because the power adaptor are have the LED to see it that they are working normally. If the power adaptor working normally their was a problem of the power supply inside your laptop and need to be repair by the electronic service center. But if the power adaptor are not working the problem are in the power adaptor. I recommend that you replace your power adaptor and bring it to the computer store to check its type and model it is because only same type or model of that power adaptor to be replace.
1) Change the fuse in the power supply plug
2) Remove all cables and battery from the laptop and then hold down the power button for 20 seconds (thats right there will be no power to the laptop) - this is to destat the laptop
4) If te above fails then the faults are as follows
1)Loose DC jack - this can be tested by plugging your power supply in and wiggling the DC jack if it is loose it will move alot
2) Faulty motherboard/CPU
For both the above i would not recommned you do the repair yourself, but book into a reputable PC shop

There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power
adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop,
remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop &
see if it works. If the laptop works directly from the power adapter
with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case
we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
If you have a volt meter you can see if the computer is putting out power to the fan, also you should be able to test the fan on an external power supply, if you dont know the fans voltage start off at 5vdc , most fans are 5 to 12 volts. Hope this helps
It sure seems to be a motherboard issue. I will advise you to buy a new MBD. And to your relief, the data on harddrives will be "nil" affected by the motherboard change.
There might be an easier and cheap solution to the problem, but the area to be audited to find the solution is large with no guarentee that we will find a viable solution. Motherboard replacement will be an instant solution..
If you own a dell laptop, but a complete cover warranty that will include a free motherboard replacement and warranty for 1 more year..
